Yes kind of but not because of the walk, later that day I had three rounds of laserstrike with a group of friends and being a darkened room ploughed into a wall at full speed so I have been paying for that today. It was a suprisingly nice walk though even though it was 28-30C the whole time, the attempt at blue the camera made is rather poor compared to the real thing.

Glorious scenery, beautiful weather... very jealous. NZ is in the travel plans, but I can't see it being anytime soon

Reminds me of what my old lodger did once. He needed to get to a place outside of Northampton called Nether Heyford. You may have heard of it, the Jesus Army are based there.
Anyway, he didn't want to ask his mates for a lift so he decided to walk it... but being relatively new to the area he underestimated the distance and lost his bearings completely. He walked all the way to Towcester (nearly 12 miles in the wrong direction) before he finally swallowed his pride and phoned for a lift.
To give you an idea of how mad it is, I include a map!
